At the current time, even though it is safer to travel only through our imagination, as a member of the European Concert Hall Organisation we are giving you the chance to enjoy some concerts as though you were seated in the auditorium of one of the continent's most prestigious performing arts centres. While last year's autumn Rising Stars series for the 2020/2021 concert season at Müpa Budapest was cancelled due to the coronavirus epidemic, on our Facebook page you can now encounter six young and ambitious musicians or groups through a live broadcast of their performances from the Elbphilharmonie concert hall in Hamburg.
The performance will be broadcasted on our Facebook page.
Born in Simferopol in 1990, Tishchenko is one of the finest young violinists discovered over recent years. As The Strad put it, 'She has the power to mesmerise the audience with her grand gesture and strong personality.' Many of her teachers and mentors have been Hungarians, including Ferenc Rados, Rita Wagner, András Schiff, Gábor Takács-Nagy an...d András Keller. She pursued her advanced studies in Berlin, and one of the greatest successes of her career so far was winning the grand prize at the Long-Thibaud-Crespin Competition in Paris. The album Diana recorded jointly with Fejérvári - titled Strangers in PARadISe - is a selection of works from composers (specifically, Ravel, Ysaÿe, Enescu and Prokofiev who were influenced by life in fin-de-siècle Paris). In a joint show alongside the Argentine pianist José Gallardo - who will also be familiar to Hungarian audiences - Diana will perform popular sonatas from Debussy and Franck in addition to a new work by the Portuguese composer Vasco Mendonça, commissioned by ECHO. The title of the piece, A Box of Darkness with a Bird in Its Heart, is taken from a poem written by Terrance Hayen, the contemporary American poet: American Sonnet for My Past and Future Assasin.
